Return to class, mayor advises

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORE‘Mame,’ ‘Hello, Dolly!’ composer Jerry Herman dies at 88 Recalling his own days as a student leading walkouts during civil-rights demonstrations in 1968, Villaraigosa added: “Yes, I was involved in protests and I paid a price. It was one of the reasons I was forced to leave school.” Sheriff Lee Baca said deputies will pursue charges against adults who are involved in future demonstrations. “We believe that it was some adults who organized these (student protests) and encouraged the kids to go on freeways,” Baca said. “In California, there is a law that makes them accountable for these actions.” Superintendent Roy Romer said a letter is being sent to parents warning them they could be prosecuted if their children are chronically truant. And Police Chief William Bratton said the Los Angeles Police Department also has a separate program that could result in $200 in fines and 20 days of community service for students who are cited for truancy. After a second day of walkouts by protesting students, Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa joined with school and law enforcement officials Tuesday in urging a return to classes and threatening a crackdown on truants. Officials estimated that 8,000 Los Angeles Unified School District students and 3,600 from neighboring districts participated in rain-soaked marches and rallies demanding rights for illegal immigrants. LAUSD officials estimated that Tuesday’s walkout, along with one Monday in which almost 25,000 students participated, cost the district nearly $950,000 in state funding. The weekday demonstrations followed massive protests Saturday and Sunday, where as many as 500,000 people rallied against proposed federal legislation that would make it a felony to be in the United States illegally. “On Saturday, when we had a half-million people out here, that was the proper use of a demonstration and protest,” Villaraigosa said in an afternoon news conference at City Hall. “Now, our students belong back in school, … in their classrooms, where they can have further discussions about this issue.” “Some of these kids might end up cleaning up the freeways they were demonstrating on,” Bratton said. Dampened by the rain, Tuesday’s demonstrations were less festive than those Monday. Students chanted but did not engage the public, as they did the previous day. Few drivers honked horns in support, and business owners and residents did not stand outside and cheer. “We’re doing this for our people,” said Vanessa Morataya, a sophomore from Birmingham High School. “If we don’t fight this, who else is going to fight it? “A lot of people are saying (the legislation) is going to be approved. We want to show them that we are a lot of people, and we’ll stand up for what we believe.” Some student protesters had gathered at the Marvin Braude San Fernando Valley Constituent Service Center in Van Nuys by midday. “We want everyone to know that you can’t mess with us, you can’t stop us,” said Jon Garcia, a 12th-grader from Birmingham High. “Even though we’re kids, even though it’s raining, we’re letting everyone know that we deserve to be heard. “We will not stop until this bill is not passed. We will not drop this.” In classrooms throughout the Valley, immigration remained a hot topic. At least two high schools – Birmingham and Verdugo Hills – held forums for students to air their views without cutting class. “By leaving campus, their voices aren’t heard,” said Birmingham Principal Marsha Coates of her school’s two student-run forums. “They’re just walking around, costing taxpayers a lot of money. It’s just a ditch day – and they will be marked as truant.” Student Body President Briana Weatherspoon hosted a lunchtime forum attended by 40 students, some of whom stressed the importance of attending class. Outside the school, two students marched in the rain with a Mexican flag, their faces shrouded by bandannas. “Write a letter to your congressman instead of walking out,” said Katherine Campos, 17, of Reseda. “If you walk out, do it after school or on the weekend. Otherwise, you leave yourself open to criticism.” At Verdugo Hills High in Tujunga, students on lunch break filed into the auditorium to talk about immigration. Armando Cuadros, 17, of Sunland was one of those who spoke, and said afterward that he feels compelled to defend illegal immigrants. “People complain about abortion – you know, about a baby – and what if that baby would (find) the cure for AIDS?” Armando said. “It’s the same thing for immigrants. What if that immigrant could find the cure for cancer?” At Los Angeles City Hall, where thousands of the students had gathered in protest over the weekend and Monday, about 75 students huddled beneath trees seeking shelter from the sporadic rain. They waved flags and shouted to motorists driving past on First Street as extra police officers were brought in to provide security. Officials said there were no problems reported as a result of the small demonstration. Eduardo “Piolin” Sotelo, a popular Spanish-language disc jockey who helped attract 500,000 people to march in downtown Los Angeles on Sunday, during his Tuesday show urged protesting teenagers to return to the classroom. “Please, parents, support your children, but the right way,” he said.

LETTERKENNY GENERAL A&E ‘IN DANGER’ SAY SINN FEIN TDs

first_imgA LACK of junior doctors at Letterkenny General could cause a crisis there within days, the county’s two TDs said today. In a joint statement, Donegal Sinn Féin TDs, Pearse Doherty and Pádraig Mac Lochlainn have appealed to the Minister for Health, James Reilly to urgently intervene and ensure that additional Non Consultant Hospital Doctors (NCHDs or Junior Doctors) are immediately appointed to the county’s main hospital.The Donegal Deputies said that it is their understanding that unless there is an immediate solution, the Accident and Emergency Department may be in danger of downgrading. Deputy Pearse Doherty said: “I challenged the Taoiseach and Minister for Health in the Dáil to publicly state what are the small rural hospitals that the Minister is referring to when he states that some will not be able to operate safely as a 24 hour A&E service as a result of the shortage of junior doctors.“The Minister refused to answer my question and indeed the persistent questioning by the Sinn Féin team over the last number of weeks on this issue”.He went on: “It is our understanding that the services of Letterkenny General Hospital will be seriously impacted as a result of the lack of junior doctors and in particular within the A&E Department.“Unless there is an immediate solution to this problem, the people of Donegal will have to endure a serious curtailment of services across a number of departments with a clear emphasis on A&E. “The Minister has already signalled that a number of hospitals will not be able to deliver a safe 24 hour accident and emergency service during the summer.”GUARANTEE NEEDED IN DAILThe TDs said their focus is to ensure that Letterkenny General is not one of the hospitals that he refers to.Said Padraig MacLochlainn: “We will be raising this yet again today in the Dáil chamber. The Minister must now make a clear statement on this matter which alleviates the concerns of the people of Donegal”This is the latest controversy surrounding the hospital which has been overspending by up to a quarter of a millon euros every week.

DONEGAL LEAGUE – ALL YOUR RESULTS, REPORTS AND FIXTURES

first_imgDonegal Junior LeagueReports Brian Mc Cormick Sports Premier DivisionCappry Rovers 4 Rathmullan Celtic 3Cappry Rovers secured the points in this seven goal thriller played in Cappry Park when they came from three goals down. Rathmullan opened the scoring as early as the third minute when Kevin Mc Grath scored with a shot to the corner of the net when the Cappry defence failed to clear. Cappry had a few chances through Brendan Mc Laughlin, Patrick Mc Nulty and Alan Patton but good keeping and defensive work kept them from scoring. Rathmullan shocked the home team on the half hour mark when Darragh Patton received a cross from Ryan Connolly, beat the off-side trap and scored. Cappry tried to get back into the game but could find no way through the visitor’s defence. Rathmullan scored their third goal in the fortieth minute when Ryan Connolly won the ball and his shot went over the top of the advancing Cappry keeper. Things were looking bleak for the home team but following a corner for Cappry on the stroke of half-time Patrick Mc Nulty rose highest to head the ball to the net and give the home team a lifeline for the second half.Cappry got their second goal in the sixty third to get them back in the game. Mark Mc Ginty put Cappry on level terms in the seventy sixth minute when he shot to the net from outside the eighteen yard box following a free kick. Cappry’s tails were up now and they kept pushing forward for the winner and they were rewarded in the eighty fourth minute when Patrick Mc Nulty scored with a header to secure the points.Team Performance from Cappry Rovers. Goalkeeper Shaun Black was best for Rathmullan Celtic. Referee: Liam Farren.Glenea United 1 Milford United 1In good conditions for football the points were shared after a hard fought game. It was the visitors that started the brightest with a Gary Merritt shot being cleared off the line by Eugene Maguire. Milford took the lead on 20 minutes when Mark Flood reacted quickest to a loose ball in the box and he forced the ball home from close range. Glenea tried hard to get into the game but were unable to create a clear cut chance. In the 2nd half the home side began to get on top and were rewarded on 65 minutes when Dean Gallagher headed home a Darren Mc Geever corner at the near post. Both sides pushed for a winner without really troubling either keeper. Team efforts from both sides. Referee: Marty Quinn.Gweedore Celtic 0 St. Catherines 3The league leaders came to an Screaban and extended their 100 % league record. St Catherines started brightly and created several half chances without troubling Mc Kelvey in the Gweedore nets. As the half progressed the home side came into the game and had two efforts from Odhran Mac Niallais that went narrowly wide. The second half started as the first with St Catherines dominating possession. On 60 minutes Odhran Mac Niallais beat three players but his effort came off the post. On 65 minutes St. Catherines were awarded a penalty but Mc Kelvey guessed correctly to make the save. On 75 minutes a mistake in the Gweedore defence allowed Jason Noctor to score from 12 yards. St Catherines were then reduced to ten men but before Gweedore could make the extra man count another misplaced pass in the home defence allowed Conor O’Rourke to score. On 85 minutes a well hit strike from Noctor wrapped up the three points for Catherines. Best for Gweedore were Brendan Devine and Damien O’Sullivan. A strong team performance from St Catherines. Referee: Mick LanganKildrum Tigers 4 Lifford Celtic 3Kildrum Tigers got their second win on the bounce with a hard fought victory over Lifford Celtic. Kildrum opened the scoring after 30 minutes when William Lynch tapped in from a Gareth Colhoun cross. Lifford responded well and equalised from the penalty spot through Ross Porter before going ahead through a wonderful finish by James Connolly. Kildrum started well in the second half and drew level on 60 minutes when Jonny Mc Ginty scored from the penalty spot for the third week running. Kildrum regained the lead on 72 minutes when William Lynch headed home from a Colhoun free kick. Lifford drew level on 79 minutes from a powerful James Connolly header. Kildrum pressed hard and got the winner with six minutes to go when Shane Mc Intyre fired home from 22 yards. A match played in a sporting manner by both sets of players. Referee: Michael Connolly.Drumoghill F.C. 1 Cranford United 0 Drumoghill FC maintained their unbeaten start to the season with this hard earned victory over a dogged Cranford United team. Liam O’Donnell’s second half strike was enough to seal the points in a game that was low on chances but high on commitment. O’Donnell managed to evade the attentions of Chris Duffy to divert Chris Malseed’s cross into the net on 67 minutes to break the deadlock after the home side had dominated possession up until then. Despite their dominance Drumoghill created little of notable chances. They were comfortable throughout but found Darren Lynch, Sharkey and Arthur Lynch tough barriers in the Cranford rearguard who restricted Drumoghill to long range efforts. Cranford did apply a lot of pressure in the closing minutes in their search for an equaliser but Drumoghill held out for another precious three points. Referee: Ed Moore.Watson Hire Division OneWhitestrand United 0 Lagan Harps 5On a clear brisk day Whitestrand United took on Lagan Harps at Mc Garvey Park. This was a repeat of a cup game a few weeks ago. Whitestrand started strongly and Paul Lynch had a good effort on goal. Lagan began to exert some pressure and this told when Stephen O’Donnell scored on the break. Whitestrand had their chance to equalise when Paul Lynch narrowly headed wide. The second came towards the end of the first half following a foul on the edge of the Whitestrand box and Stephen O’Donnell scored his second when he floated the ball over the wall and into the far corner. The first half was a story of one side taking their chances and the other side not. The second half started with both teams knowing the importance of the next goal. This came when Stephen O’Donnell took home the match ball with his and Lagan’s third. Then Lagan closed out the game in excellent fashion when both Odhran Mc Macken and Christopher Toner piled the misery on Whitestrand and completed a comprehensive win for Lagan Harps. Best for Lagan was Stephen O’Donnell and best for Whitestrand was Sean Martin.Castlefin Celtic 2 Gweedore United 0Castlefin kept their good run of form going with a win over Gweedore. A scrappy game in Park View saw both teams struggle to settle on the ball for a large period of the first half. Castlefin had a good chance to take the lead after 25minutes but Ronan Tourish saw his strike well saved by the Gweedore keeper. Castlefin broke the deadlock on 42 minutes, a Barry Tourish ball across the box found Ronan Tourish who volleyed into the back of the net from 6 yards. Castlefin could have doubled the lead before half time but Ian Ward’s 20 yard strike hit the post. Castlefin started the second half the brighter and doubled their advantage on 50 minutes. Barry Tourish’s excellent run down the wing found JP Malley in the box who had a simple task to tap in from 3 yards.Referee: Joe McHugh.Keadue Rovers 7 Kerrykeel ’71 F.C. 1Keadue Rovers continued their good start to this season with another fine win over Kerrykeel at Central Park on Sunday. Kerrykeel were to the fore from the start. They went in front following an Adrian Hanlon corner. The ball ran loose at the edge of the box and Paul Mc Garvey’s left foot volley went past the keeper. They went two up on twenty eight minutes, again from a corner. Conor Greene rose to meet it at the near post. The away side got back into the game on thirty eight minutes when Colm Mc Gonagle found some space at the edge of the area and rifled a shot low to the net. Keadue hit their third when Luke Neely held off a defender on the right and slotted past the keeper. On the hour mark Adrian Hanlon ended the game as a contest when he headed excellently past the keeper after a long clearance from the Keadue defence. James Boyle fired to the corner for Keadue’s fifth on sixty five minutes. On seventy three minutes Ryan Greene made it 6-1 finishing well on the run. The scoring was completed two minutes from the end when Adam Neely was first to the ball after a free kick and slotted low under the keeper. Best for Keadue were Jack O’Brien, Conor Greene and Adrian Hanlon while best for Kerrykeel were Martin Mc Ateer and Cathal Martin. Referee: Marty Mc Garrigle.Copany Rovers 2 Dunkineely Celtic 1Copany Rovers recorded their first victory of the season with a home win over local rivals Dunkineely Celtic.The game started brightly with both teams creating clear cut chances but unable to find the net. It remained 0-0 at half time. Dunkineely started the brighter in the second half coming close on a couple of occasions but it was Copany sub Liam Duffy who opened the scoring when he neatly slotted home after a nice ball over the top by Roger Leonard . Copany then went close on a couple of occasions but couldn’t extend their lead. Dunkineely started to pile on the pressure and were rewarded with an equaliser on 82 minutes. The game looked like it was going to end 1-1 but there was just time for Thomas Given to get on the end of a Liam Duffy cross to secure the three points. Good team performance from Dunkineely with Liam Duffy and Ross and Callum Gallagher standing out for the home side .CT Ball Division TwoGlenree United 1 Raphoe Town 2It was the visitors who went away with the three points after a dogged game. They broke the deadlock on 20 minutes when the forward toe poked the ball over the line. In the 27th minute they were two up after a good through ball let Recce Ruddock finished well. In the second half Glenree came to life and Karl Mc Elhinney sent Patrick Mc Groddy through to finish excellently. Then in the 78th minute Mc Elhinney made good work to get into the box but could only watch in agony as his chip clipped the bar and went out of danger. Both sides created a few more chances but it ended with a Raphoe Town victory. Man of the match was Karl Mc Elhinney. Referee: Kevin LogueLetterbarrow Celtic 2 Convoy Arsenal 3This game was played in perfect conditions at Tymeen. Convoy Arsenal maintained their 100% winning start to the season. In a game of good football Convoy took the lead on twenty minutes when Johnny Robb beat the offside trap to curl a perfect finish past the home keeper. Five minutes later it was all even again when Kieran Breslin hammered home from close range. Convoy scored two late first half goals through Ryan Carlin and a second from Johnny Robb. Letterbarrow put in a strong performance in the second half and pulled a goal back through Barry Rose on sixty minutes. The visiting keeper produced a brilliant save in injury time to secure all three points for Convoy. Best for Letterbarrow were Eoin Gallagher and Liam Reynolds. Carlin and Robb were best for Convoy.Old Orchard Saturday Division OneArranmore United 2 Orchard F.C. 2Title chasing Orchard F.C. were held to a draw on the Island on Saturday but it could have been worse as it took a last minute penalty to deny the young island team the three points. Orchard started the better but didn’t threaten the keeper Conner proctor. Arranmore took the lead from a penalty on 10 minutes through Daniel O’ Donnell after Chris Mc Glanaghey was taking down. Arranmore doubled their lead on 18 minutes when Declan Proctor scored from a difficult angle. Orchard never gave up and Mc Laughlin hit a screamer from 25 yards giving Proctor no chance. This gave the visitors some hope but Arranmore worked tirelessly to hold their advantage. Just when it seemed the home side had done enough Orchard broke on the right and gained a penalty in the 90th minute which Sweeney duly converted, Arranmore had a chance to win it but Mc Glanaghey was adjudged offside when put clean through by McGowan. Team efforts by both sides. Referee: Barry Hunter,Glenea United Reserves 2 Donegal Town Reserves 2Glenea started well and took the lead on 12 minutes when Donal Coll got onto a through ball and lobbed it over the stranded keeper. Glenea pushed hard for a 2nd goal but were unable to find it. In the 2nd half the home side started well again and went close on a couple of occasions to doubling their lead. Donegal Town equalised on 60 minutes when Caolan Gaphney was on hand to score from close range after the home side failed to deal with a cross. Glenea regained the lead on 70 minutes when Darren Duggan picked up a loose ball on the edge of the box and calmly drove the ball home. The away side equalised again on 80 minutes when a cross from the left found Ted Bustard and he slotted the ball home. Best for Glenea were Donal Coll and Kevin McFadden while Ted Bustard was lively for Donegal Town. Referee: Martin Coll.Castlefin Celtic Reserves 1 St. Catherines Reserves 4In an even first half it was Castlefin who took the lead after 8 minutes. Darragh Redmond’s cross from the right found Paddy Dooher who saw his first shot saved but he made no mistake with the rebound. St. Catherines beat the offside trap to equalise on 40 minutes when Ryan Ward found himself one on one and finished low into bottom corner giving Castlefin keeper Kieran Brennan no chance. St.Catherines started the second half the better and took the lead on 53 minutes when Stevie Anderson made no mistake from the penalty spot. St.Catherines got their third on 63 minutes through Stefan Boyle. St.Catherines made it four and wrapped up all three points when Eoin O’Donnell finished neatly into bottom corner on 89 minutes.Referee: Con McLaughlin. Best for Castlefin: Paddy Dooher. Best for St.Catherines: Team Performance.Glencar Celtic 2 Erne Wanderers 2A brace from Jason Doherty kept Glencar on course in this season’s title battle. Erne didn’t make it easy for the reigning champions and goals from Jason Gallagher and Mark Dorrian kept the game alive until the final whistle.Glenree United Reserves 2 Fintown Harps AFC 0The first half was closely contested with both teams carving out half chances but the keepers came out on top. It looked like they were going to go in 0-0 at half time until Eric Roberts beat his man and delivered a fine cross to the back post which Vinny McLaughlin volleyed superbly from a tight angle past the keeper. Fintown came out strong after the break but found John Cunningham in the Glenree goal in good form. The visitors won a penalty when the Glenree keeper was adjudged to have fouled the Fintown attacker but the penalty was brilliantly saved by the in-form Cunningham. Hamlyn doubled the lead on 35 minutes when Darren Connor found him at the back post with a fine cross. Glenree saw out the game for a well-deserved first win of the season. A strong team performance for Fintown with Vinny McLaughlin, Benny Cunningham and Darren Connor standing out in a fine Glenree performance.Glencar Inn Saturday Division TwoCurragh Athletic Reserves 2 Drumoghill F.C. Reserves 1Curragh remained undefeated at home with a hard earned victory over a very good Drumoghill team. Curragh took the lead in the 40th minute when Justin Mc Bride passed the ball to Conor Gallagher who cleverly chipped the keeper. Drumoghill scored in the 60th minute from a Michael Lynch free kick. Curragh pushed for a winner, and were rewarded in the 90th minute when Justin Mc Bride found Owen Harvey who scored. Team performance from Curragh. Best for Drumoghill was Jason Flood.Mulroy Celtic 4 Milford United Reserves 0Mulroy came out victorious in this local derby. The home side took the lead inside the first ten minutes through Michael Sweeney who raced onto a through ball from big brother Eamon. Michael lifted the ball over Enda McHugh in the Milford goal. Mulroy and Michael doubled their tally before the interval. The second half began with Milford applying more pressure and created a few good chances. Mulroy made the game safe when Michael Sweeney controlled the ball thirty yards from goal, advanced forward, and fired an unstoppable shot in off the under-side of the crossbar. New signing Shaun Mc Govern was very unlucky not to open his account when he latched onto a great cross from Andrew Friel. Mc Govern got his deserved goal when Sweeney turned assistant and squared to his partner who finished well. Best for Milford: Ciaran McGinley and Ciaran Blaney. Best for Mulroy: Michael SweeneyStrand Rovers 0 Cranford United Reserves 0This game ended scoreless in Maghery. Rovers enjoyed the majority of the possession over the term but found the Cranford defence in defiant mood. Anything that did get beyond their rearguard was capably dealt with by their goalkeeper who went on to have a fine match. Doalty Boyle, Maghery’s best performer on the day tried to inspire his side but the points were shared in the West.Tullyvinney Rovers 0 Ramelton Mariners 4In a game which was reversed from the crossroads to Rabs Park Ramelton Mariners ran out comfortable 4-0 winners. Corey Mc Cahill opened the scoring on 26minutes when he finished from an acute angle. Five minutes later it was 2-0 when Brandon Toye scored from all of 40 yards into the top corner. The second half began with Tullyvinney fighting hard and using the long ball but the Mariners’ defence stood tall. Diggy Buchanan scored the 3rd on 53minutes with a delicate flick and the 4th was scored by Gavin “G-Mac” Mackey when he nodded home from a corner. Best for mariners were Barry Cullen and James Doyle. Good team effort from the visitors.ResultsOld Orchard Saturday Division OneArranmore United 2 v 2 Orchard F.C.Glenea United Reserves 2 v 2 Donegal Town ReservesCastlefin Celtic Reserves 1 v 4 St. Catherines ReservesGlencar Celtic v Erne WanderersGlenree United Reserves 2 v 0 Fintown Harps AFCGlencar Inn Saturday Division TwoCurragh Athletic Reserves 2 v 1 Drumoghill F.C.
